Countdown to lift-off

Below are your first steps to help you get your tea party off the ground. 

Choose when

Is there a family birthday or anniversary coming up? Would you have been going somewhere as a family? Whatever the excuse there is always reason for a party!

Pick how

There are many ways you can host your virtual tea party. We have handy How To Guides that show you how to set up a video call.

How to use Zoom

Choose a theme

We have plenty of printable and digital resources to help make your virtual tea party special. If you want to do something different then how about a teddy bear’s picnic if you are inviting younger guests? Or you could choose to theme your party around a birthday,  a garden party, a summer fiesta, etc.

What to serve

Cakes, sandwiches, snacks, tea, soft drinks – the options are endless! Homemade or shop-bought? BYO or treats provided? If you have a health conscious audience how about a guilt free tea party replacing white bread and scones for tasty wholemeal, bran or fruit muffins. You can slip fruit, veggies and dips in amongst all the cakes and biscuits. Let your guests know what you will be having and challenge them to make the same.  

Who to invite

As your party is virtual the guest list can be as big as your video call will allow. You can use our digital tools to help you invite people through email, social media or just pick up the phone and get everyone involved.
